The blades of vengeances have fallen swiftly. The shinobi are no more as 'Absolute Justice' has returned...now, it is the Samurai that rule the Five Major Nations!
But at what cost? Have they become the very thing that they despised the most...? Heroes and villains seem to change roles every day, but one thing is for certain - we yearn for our freedom, for days gone by where we flew the skies unhindered.
Owned and operated by a retired shinobi, the store actively participates in each exam, bringing forth quality weapons that are sure to assist aspiring Genin on their path towards their next rank. All items for sale reach the 'A' rank.

Getting a bit sidetracked, the weight of the shinobi would press against the leisure footwear that would protect his then, dark feet. With padded bottoms, the sandals would slowly stride against the rough stone flooring of the massive building. Unsure of which floor he ad arrived in, Kurai's absent left hand would rise to the back of his head as he would begin to play with the long aqua hair that would cover the majority of his face. Taking a massive sigh he would begin to wander around the massive compound. Making glances with the numerous vendors and visitors that had attended the examinations, not only was he unsure of what to purchase, but where to get it. Unsure of what to bring to the exams, he was running a bit low on useful items that would no doubt help him prevail against his fellow Genin competitors. That's when he noticed the massive crowd attending a single vendor who's moniker would boldly read 'Achilles Armaments.'
Taking a venture towards the crowd, his head would begin to stray as he would sift through the crowd to get a look at the merchandise which would no doubt benefit him in his battles. He would no doubt need to purchase another ninja pack to hold all of the things waiting to burn a massive hole in his pocket.
Gin realized he was a little short on armaments. He lacked the firepower to compete in the Chunin Exams at full potential, and with such an obstacle in his way, he opted to head up to the shops. Several minutes passed by and he was already standing in front of a row of different stores, selling all sorts of equipment. To his surprise, there was an expert craftsman there as well, taking custom orders. Gin gripped his mini-bank, popping it open and skimming over how much money he had. He hadn't spent any of his reserve from his missions, and that did him well.
After thinking about his purchase, he stepped forward to one of the salesmen, placing a simple order. He had enough sharpness in his arsenal, and thus he concluded he needed some more 'oomph.' His attacks could not be dulled down to rudimentary projectile tossing. He was a strategist, and he lacked the supplies of one. "I'd like those, please." He pointed at several different selections, and after calculating the price he retrieved the money and held it in hand. Once his items were attained, he paid the worker, thanking him for his time.
With that, he walked off. Disappearing from the crowd.
The summit was indeed an amazing work of art that could captivate many for years to come, though it did have its downfalls to be completely honest, but the Samurai and other people that inhabited the halls were quite interesting. Through those crowded halls my form would slip between the other inhabitants trying their hardest to get through… Annoyed I’d have my attention turned only to the signs looking for a food establishment I could stop and relax in unfortunately I’d have no such luck being pushed down into the direction of the northern wing… I was no longer in control of my own fate which not a single bone in my body appreciated being carried in the wave of bodies.
When I finally emerged I’d find myself at a different type of establishment ‘Achilles Armaments’… “Interesting…” My thoughts lead me on now realizing that I may need more equipment for this exam I’d browse through the different materials and items they had available confidently grabbing what would be of use to me. The woman behind the register had noticed me come in, and politely welcomed me as I continually passed by her browsing.
Avoiding other customers I finally assembled my stash and approached the woman, of course I may of gone a bit overboard with the items. I filled a few baskets and carried them all to the cashier placing each of the baskets in front of her confidently.
OOC Note: To make life easier I changed the cost to the actual price for items I have multiples of.

After she had checked the prices and taken the proper amount I’d bow my head to the woman and take my leave. Removing myself from this wing.
Oh dear. She was quite low on funds- Although she was glad that she had bought that damned whip from her brother, why couldn't she just have paid him back later on? Sighing to herself she would then look around the place as she'd walk, soon approaching a shop named Achilles Armaments. All she needed was a few things, so, entering the shop, she would pick up a basket, and would walk around the place for a few moments, looking at all of the different weapons and secondary weapons on the shelves, wondering which ones would fit the things that she was planning to use in the exams. Having but a little bit of space left in her secondary weapon holster she'd have to be very careful with her decisons, but then again, she was here for something more than that- A sword. "Let's see what's on offer here.."
But first of all came the secondary weapons. Looking around them, she would soon pick up a few things that she deemed interesting and useful in combat, and would place them in the basket.
Although being quite non-profficient in Taijutsu, it didn't mean that she couldn't swing a sword around and cause quite some damage. And so, walking to the wall that held a whole range of swords, she would muse for a while as she thought of the pros and cons of each, picking them up, placing them down, and then swishing them about, making sure not to break anything in the store. She would look over them for a good 10 minutes before finaly choosing the one she was to buy- A Saber with a black and red hilt. Holding it, she'd walk along to pay for the things that she had picked. Walking to the desk she would hand over the ryo, and after the transaction was complete, she would leave the area, off to train, or to meet others. W/E.
Saber Rank: C Type: Primary / Melee Description: A scimitar or saber is a backsword with a long curved blade, up to four feet in length, and is often thought of as having a ridge near the end. Due to its curved design and light weight, it is ideal for slashing and thrusting. Cost: 1,000 Ryo

Makibishi (Ground Spikes) X2 Rank: D Type: Secondary / Ranged Special: 20 per Pack.

He walked into the shop, picked up the item and put it down with the appropriate ryo. He then left after the transaction went through.

The inside of the summit was. . .fairly impressive. Axcel didn't realize how large their shop alone was. When he arrived at the Northern Wing, near 'Achilles Armaments', he placed both the massive Samurai sword and the armor he had acquired and been lugging around from the Samurai who had attacked him on the table. He had no use for it, and he was sure the Samurai would like it back. Hopefully Axcel could acquire a ryo or two for helping them out. . .
